CFI vs CFI


Buccaneer

Recommended Posts

Well, it looks like I have a race going on between me and a guy in Utah named CFI-EFI and his 84 CF. The race will be down here at Firebird in the winter maybe Oct/Nov time frame. There has been a S&^# storm brewing on Smokin'Vette forum about our manifold vs a ported stock manifold and I finally just said...I'll put my money where my mouth is, let's race fool. It looks like he's excepting the offer. There has also been comments that a 383 vs his 350/355 motor wouldn't be fair in a heads up race. Well Hal, do you want to talk about your ride? If so, give me a shout. You will have the Renegade on your motor by then, I hope, and we'll see how it runs. It doesn't have to be my car really, just have a Renegade on it. I think Hal can REPRESENT nicely. We may need a new TC for you though. :P

hmmm... let me get this straight: this guy doesn't believe the dyno numbers (I'm sure you posted them along with some other data which wouldn't jeopardize the patent). He won't run against you because you have a 383 vs his 350. Money is involved...and now so is Hal! :cool I think we need to Tim up here from Tucson with his 84'!

I have no problem racing this clown and he's the one that excepted and he knows I have a 383. There have been other comments that it wouldn't be fair...Hell, who's talking about fair? :P I just want to crush him and shut him up, but Hal car can do I believe with the right mods. :):partydance:

Hey, that's a plan right there. Maybe Donna would be down for that and the car would run a 1/4 sec faster I bet. :thumbs. Besides, she wants to drive an 82 again anyway. :P

Hey Tom - if you're serious, we can chat later. . . :burnout It would be cool to romp on an 82 again!

In the meantime, maybe I need to have a conversation with F22trainer about volunteering me for stuff :cfdeadagain

J/K :smilelol :smilelol :smilelol

Well, only a few hours later and we went from a race to a "dyno shootout" over at LPM. :thumbs Looks like we have made progress on what will actually happen to resolve the "who's" manifold is better thing. Thanks Dave and Mike and I'll let you know more as soon as I do. We still plan on racing as well. Do you think we could make this an ACE event also and rent the track for the day? Dwayne, how much would that cost and how many cars would we need? Call me and we can talk about this.
